In this Part, “relevant amount” means—
(b)interest on devolved tax;
(c)a penalty relating to devolved tax;
(d)interest on a penalty relating to devolved tax.

When a relevant amount is paid to WRA, WRA must give a receipt if requested to do so.
(1)The Welsh Ministers may by regulations provide that a person who pays a relevant amount to WRA using a method of payment prescribed by the regulations must also pay a fee prescribed by, or determined in accordance with, the regulations.
(2)Regulations under this section may make provision about the time and manner in which the fee must be paid.
(1)A certificate of WRA that a relevant amount has not been paid to WRA is sufficient evidence that the amount is unpaid unless the contrary is proved.
(2)A document purporting to be such a certificate is to be treated as if it were such a certificate unless the contrary is proved.
(1)Where a relevant amount is payable by a person and it does not exceed £2,000, it is recoverable summarily as a civil debt.

(2)In section 63(3) of that Act (enforcement agents), after paragraph (b) insert—
